At Intelligence Driven Advisers, we’re in the process of designing what we’re calling Family Wealth Legacies: getting multiple generations in the same room to talk about what money is, why it matters, how we feel about it, and how we handle it. We see it as a phenomenal value add, and we’re excited to share it with you.
Over the course of this multi-part series, we want to dig deep into how wealth affects families across generations and intertwine this knowledge to help families weave money into their important conversations.
In this first part of the podcast, we want to address how these topics matter to the youngest generation – children and grandchildren. We discuss the importance of education (financial and otherwise), landing entry-level jobs (and leaving them without burning bridges), the dangers of debt, and how to start investing.
Stay tuned for part two, where we’ll discuss the unique issues that affect parents of these children.
In today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:
- How to start financial education with children at ages as young as eight or nine – and why a college education still helps so many people become financially successful.
- Why inheritance can destroy work ethic and lead to entitlement – and why it’s so important to get started working and saving money.
- Why it’s so hard to get ahead when you fall behind on credit card payments or college debt – and how to build credit without credit cards.
- How much of your pre-tax income you should be saving – and how to save for luxury items later in life.
